Laura Lima “Fuga/Flight” [Suijo Building Site] Suijo Building

Featured work in the Suijo Building was installation with birds by Laura Lima (Brazil). It caught much attention through social media. Lots of discussion was born and people thought about various things.

João Modé “NET Project” Aichi Arts Center

Public participation type work by João Modé was seen at 3 sites: Nagoya City Art Museum, Kagota Park[Rokku Site], Toyohashi Arts Theatre, and 4 sites of Mobile Triennale. Works from each site were gathered to Aichi Art Center on the last week and finally became a big net. Choja-machi Ebisu Festival, which is held at Choja-machi, one of the site in Nagoya Area, and closing of the Triennale were celebrated their finale together with many citizens.

Lastly, I could talk with the director Minato. He told “Aichi has history. Vigorous art scene and many festivals as well. The Triennale was closed but its heat was still in the air and some new caravans are being born”.

It was great opportunity that everybody could naturally learn and enjoy varied things. I would like to appreciate for this experience as a citizen and hope next festival goes well too.
